This page is meant to educate the public at large about the issues which children face in India and to create awareness and consciousness about issues such as child labour, child abuse, child marriage, lack of healthcare and sanitation and child suffering.
We intend to reach to the general public and involve them in spreading the word about what Save the Children does as well as urge them to donate to Save the Children so that it can pu their money to use for improving the situation of the most marginalised children in the country.
Child illiteracy, child labour, child marriage and abuse and lack of implementation of child rights as well as cultural influences, socio-economic inequality and gender discrimination are key reasons behind India's poverty are deterrent to India's economic growth.
We wish to bring forth these challenges, reach various strata of Indian society and help bring about positive and lasting changes by increasing awareness and action on these issues.
